Thoughts on GAMING PC?

Hey guys!

This is my second build and an upgrade from my first.
I was wondering what you all think about it and if you have anything you'd like to change etc. It will primarily be for gaming and this is pretty much my budget.

CPU: Intel Core i5 7600K Unlocked
GRAPHICS CARD: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming 8GB
MOTHERBOARD: Gigabyte Z270M-D3H Intel Motherboard
RAM: Kingston HyperX Fury 16GB (2x8GB) 2133MHz DDR4
POWER SUPPLY: Thermaltake 650W Smart Pro RGB 80+ Bronze Power Supply
CASE: Thermaltake View 27 Mid Tower

I have a 120GB SSD and 2 HDD's already

Thanks guys!

  1. Looks good, but you'll need to pick out a Z270 motherboard. You can't use a Z170 on Kaby Lake without a bios update.

    Oh great! I'll change from the Z170M to a Z270 motherboard. Thanks for your help :)

    You need a CPU Cooler as the unlocked i7 doesn't have one. Below is my suggested CPU Cooler (good price/performance and fits your View 27). Also, you can get a much faster RAM (speed of 2666MHz than the 2133MHz) for the same price.
